@Spidey- - Great screenshots :) I'd love to see more. It's really showing beauty of fs2_open and media_vps combined.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Can someone get some shots of some shivan and vasudan fighters\caps that arnt usually arnt glorified?

One example is the GVB_Bakha_001.png pic, we rarely see those fighters in pritty ass shots. Lets get some shivan only, vasudan only, and a mix fighter battle with both please.

Re: A celebration of Freespace


Looks like a giant unbreakable brick! .. I want it better to be on my side :P
Its actually useless against cruisers. I pitted it against a Cain and the Cain won 4/5. The fifth time, the missile barrage from the cruiser took out the beam cannon.

Which missiles we're you using?

<Axem>   did anyone catch jesus' birth certificate?
<Nuclear>   and jesus didnt actually give the 5000 their fish...he gave it to the romans and let it trickle down
<Axem>and he was totally pro tax breaks
<Axem>he threw out all those tax collectors at the temple
<Nuclear>   he drove a V8 camel too
<Nuclear>   with a sword rack for his fully-automatic daggers

Not purely Vasudan and Shivan, but anyway:

Incoming Dragons:

The Knossos portal is destroyed:

Thoths in formation around the Renenet:

The Knossos pieces float silently in space...:

...only to be interrupted by the arrival of the Sathanas:

"That's impossible! Request immediate status update!":

The Renenet gets out of the way:

A modified MX-52. I just increased its firing arc to 180 and increased its swarm size to 12, so the missiles can track much better than originally. Also makes them look freaking cool when all the tubes fire off at once.

If you downloaded the zipfile for the Garm, I included some new missiles for it. They're anti-capital/way overpowered AAA missiles. They pack a lot more kick--might make up for the beam deficiency. Might want to change the fire rate to 30 seconds instead of 45.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Thanks. (Only commenting on vasudan shots) You got several good vasudan shots. Vasudan fighters are all pritty, tho they are light and suck to be in.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Umm, ssmit, you do know that the Sathanas is upside-down, right?

On a better note, I like the shockwave you're using, albeit it being a bit watery.

Re: A celebration of Freespace

Yes, I realized that, but it's kind of hard to predict what way a ship's jumping in. I didn't intend on taking that shot, but I decided when I saw it, to quickly take a screen.

On a better note, I like the shockwave you're using, albeit it being a bit watery.

It's the 3.6.10 2D shockwave. I decided that it would look better/more realistic than the 3D one - not that there's anything wrong with the 3D one, of course!  :nervous:

Unfortunately, most of the Vasudan missions from the retail campaign are in the Nebula - only "A Flaming Sword", "Bearbaiting" and "High Noon" are in Gamma Draconis/Capella. I should take some screens from Derelict or something.  ;)

Spidey, custom command line options now.  Give them.  That Deimos looks better than I've ever seen it look in your shots.  In fact I've never seen King's Gambit look that good.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
:cool::yes:

I'm content.

After learning that I needed to use -window to run the mediavps properly on Mac, I loaded up Flaming Sword's Shivan mod a few hours before daybreak and took some screenshots in the Ship Viewer (F3). Expect some shots from me in a few hours.
